Back to Jhalong from New Mall......
This series which I have started with snaps of New Mall is my latest visit in Dooars during pujas. Jhalong valley is part of Offbeat Dooars- in the last three months I've visited Jhalong twice.
This time round I find the valley more green and more attractive in the monsoon rain.Looks like a picture postcard to me with the river Jaldhaka flowing in between.
Jhalong is a lesser-trodden offbeat wonder of Dooars Himalayan foothills.It is situated on the bank of Jaldhaka river on the way to Bindu in Kalimpong Sub-division.Jhalong is 103 km by road from Siliguri. It is best to go to Chalsa and then hire a cab to reach Jhalong in approx 2 Hrs journey.

Seems you have really fallen in love with Dooars :) But then this place looks really inviting. The greens are so refreshing, well captured with the meandering river in the BG.

Nicely framed with the clear forground towards the mist in the back, good balanced green.

It looks like a beautiful valley, I like here the rich green hues of the fields that allow the tree to contrast well, even being green as well.
Have a nice week end,

It does look like a picture postcard. The color, detail and framing are all lovely. I had never associated this tropical scenery with India, but when I think about it, I should have. The note is full of useful information as well.

I browse over collections and it's pretty impressive. Keep up yeah!
..I have ekstra love for anything that green and panoramic. Your photo here is beautiful and harmonious. I may change the POV to try excluding the huge trees on the foreground. But, overall its beautiful.
